Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008 Vintage Champagne 75cl
Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2008 Champagne is a prestige Cuvée only produced in very limited amounts from 6 crus selected from Madame's own vineyards. The blend is 92% Pinot Noir grapes from the Grands Crus at Ay, in the Grande Vallèe de la Marne, and at Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay and Bouzy in the Montagne de Reims and 8% Chardonnay grapes from the House’s Grand Cru in Le-Mesnil-sur-Oger.
The blend with 92% Pinot Noir is the highest percentage in Veuve Clicquot’s history and is the first La Grande Dame creation from Cellar Master Dominique Demarville. "My vision is to bring La Grande Dame towards the finesse and elegance that the Pinot Noir offers us in these Grands Crus. In a way, this is the Veuve Clicquot twist: to combine depth and silkiness with lightness and elegance in this exceptional cuvée."Read more...
